About Edward Coffeemeyer


Age: [36] First and Fourth Reliefs

      Sailor. After returning with the Fourth Relief, Coffeemeyer told such gruesome stories about Louis Keseberg's cannibalism that Keseberg sued him for slander, and won. Coffeemeyer bought some items from the estates of George and Jacob Donner at an auction at Sutter's Fort on June 3, 1847. He lingered in the general area of Sutter's Fort for nearly a year, for he is mentioned several times in the New Helvetia Diary up until March 1848, but after that he simply disappears from the historical record.
